Muscle

First, something not game related.

As usual on Tuesdays I went to play badminton at the local sports centre. Everything was fine until I felt like a tennis ball hit me in the calf, and could not play any more. It turns out I pulled my muscle :-(

For the first time ever I had to use crutches to move about… This will take weeks to heal. It’s even quite funny, because I will have to climb a ladder tomorrow, and not in the game either, but real stuff. If I fall off, this might be the end of Survivalcraft as we know it :-)

Speaking of which. On the game front I am trying to cram as much stuff in before Christmas as I can, but as they are quickly approaching, I will have to stop soon. The bow needs a few finishing touches.

If you’re reading my twitter, you know that you’ll need to manually load an arrow before shooting. I think this is more realistic than automatic reload, and gives a more immersive experience. What I still need to do is to add a source of materials for the bow string and make aiming more challenging.

Here’s the set of arrows you can use:

    for the bow string: add sheep or just have cat gut be dropped by some other animal. or cotton would work, have it be grown.

      Yes cotton would be nice, we could grow it and eventually, maybe make clothing.

    For making it a little more difficult to aim maybe when the arrow is drawn, at the fullest power or tension, it wiggles or wiggles more.

      You see I was twelve at the time my friend spyro135 or David he told me about minecraft and I liked then christmas came around my old android tablet shattered and I my grandma got a kindle so she aloud me to search the appstore on her kindle so I searched up mcpe then I found an app it was called survivalcraft so I found the demo and downloaded it then I played and liked then later I got my own kindle and bought the full survivalcraft game and I loved I introduced it to my friends and they all liked but then I found this blog’s web link at the bottom of the home page I clicked on it and found my way here. And I actually liked it here, I friends and everything like Marlon, whitestripe, and ash. Then I met ze God of evil cake and defended cake and toasted ze God of evil’s buns (ah my buns!) And later I met spottedcloud and blackstone and the rest of comment clan.
      And so came to be me a young 13 year old boy. You see its been a whole year I’ve been with survivalcraft and this is a dire situation kaalus could die and we survivalcraft will be no more but I got a plan just in case I’m gonna have a talk with spottedcloud maggieblue and roslyn b to see about creating a blog for everyone in the survivalcraft community.

    “What I still need to do is to add a source of materials for the bow string”

    Hmmm let’s delve deeper into this guys…the bow string has been coded so he needs to add materials (plural) meaning more than one…so he has to just give us a method of procuring these items. I think it could be either a cotton source or a wool source.. If is a cotton source, perhaps we could be getting a new crop? That would be awesome. Now let’s take a look at a wool source.. We could get wool from a new sheep or another new animal, which would also be awesome, or a drop from a animal we already have, which would be great, Maybe get a wool block from it? Either way this means we can now fashion a bow string. This could be a great lead in into future crafting of a possible fishing line, which would be also awesome. The arrow heads are self explanatory I believe, sticks with a wood tip, stone tip, iron tip and a diamond tip.

    hey guys why are you being foolish? The first bow strings were made from hemp,linen,sinew,silk, and raw hide. Maybe kaalus could make the reign deer drop sinew?

    • Posted December 11, 2013 at 02:33 | Permalink | Reply

      Great suggestions, but I believe it will go the mc route I.e. Wool

      • Posted December 11, 2013 at 02:34 | Permalink | Reply

        It is very unrealistic to add a whole new crop or animal when you already have an animal with the potential to drop sinew or raw hide

        • Posted December 11, 2013 at 03:14 | Permalink

          I do not believe it’s unrealistic to add a new crop, people have been asking for a new crop. As for a animal, I think he would rather add a new animal rather then make a existing one have a new drop. We have only one animal as of now that drops leather, and I think the leather will be exclusive to the saddle only. I don’t believe sinew or raw hide makes a great bow string, sinew and raw hide tends to stretch opposed to cotton or wool. But it’s whatever, I just like to debate topics while we wait for the updates. My money is on wool. Hey but ya never know.

        • Posted December 11, 2013 at 10:43 | Permalink

          see what I don’t quite understand is where you get the idea from, in the primitive times nobody used wool for a bow string.

        • Posted December 12, 2013 at 04:07 | Permalink

          MC uses string dropped by spiders, usually called silk. Wool is a spun textile and does not have the strength to withstand a bow. Silk is a single stranded textile and was used in bows until the invention of nylon.

        • Posted December 13, 2013 at 00:32 | Permalink

          that seems legitimate

        • Posted December 12, 2013 at 13:37 | Permalink

          Kaalus is trying to put as many things as possible, so we shouldn’t suggest something new right now. It would be a little hard, trying to create a new crop. I agree with survivalman1. Raw hide would probably work for now.

        Yeah wool is a bad idea … it’s got a lot of stretch in it (depending on how it’s spun). You don’t want that, and the wooden bow flexing at the same time – the prey will just laugh at you as the arrows fly wide of their mark, and then turn round and attack you! But some kind of ‘fabric-related’ crop would be nice for clothes … wool for the cold areas, cotton for the warm areas etc.

        • Posted December 13, 2013 at 16:08 | Permalink

          Cotton is twirled, just like wool. It’ll pull apart under the strain, just like wool.

      Animal’s fur… wolves have fur, but it would be coarse. Perfect for making clothes, though. Alpacas? The way Kaalus is going with the more animals at a better scale of realism could lead to beautiful alpacas. Davidthegreatblogger said that alpacas were in the coding. Maybe he’ll add it in a very near update

    “Survivalcraft was first released on 16th of November 2011 on Windows Phone 7, where it enjoyed a lot of success being the first block world game to reach that platform. The version number was 1.0.

    Android version was released on October 14, 2012, at version 1.17. Amazon users got it less than a month later with version 1.18. iOS build of version 1.21 was approved by Apple on 26th of April 2013.”

    Sadly, it appears that adding a bow and arrow won’t really help against the ever increasing horde of deadly animals. It will require manual loading and be hard to aim. If the damage is anything like a spear it will be virtually useless. Efforts to make the game more “challenging” are making it an exercise in frustration. Unless you’re on Harmless it’s ridiculous how long it takes to do things because of constant attacks.

    • RosslynB
      Posted December 11, 2013 at 15:27 | Permalink | Reply

      The damage rate will probably be higher than a spear. Spears are hard to aim and hard to pick up once you fire them. And, depending on which animal you fire at, you might have a horde coming after you. Arrows, will probably do twice the damage of their spear predecessor. Wooden arrows: not much to say here. Probably 1-2 damage. Stone arrows: Hm, a bit better 2-3 damage. Iron arrows: Probably heavy 3-4 damage. Diamond arrows: Now we’re getting somewhere 4-6 damage, possibly. Remember, these arrow damage counters are just estimates.

        Diamond spear does 7damage. So the arrow would do 14?

      The bow might have a huge range and if you position yourself some place the attacking animal can’t get you, you should be safe. (I assume)

      Its actually not difficult if you just stay away from an animal. Not fight a rhino up close. The arrows go longer and probably faster and more powerful than spear. Arrows are VERY useful.

    Sooo, your health don’t come first. Is climbing a ladder that important that it worth the risk in making your health worse? Not a good idea, should get somebody else to climb that ladder instead. After all, your not a lone on an island are you?

      Yes his health comes first, but as we all know Kaalus is a devoted and hard working individual so it may be difficult for him to say no to it, it could be another job he holds, therefore he is committed to it as much if not more to it.

    Hmmm… Didn’t someone just recently release a video showing how to build a wheel chair? Now Kaalus has a busted leg?… Hmm mere coincidence?… It woulda been a trip if Kaalus had built that wheel chair and had the character next to it under the posting “muscle” :/

    he should add a weather control system where for creative mode only. the map creater can decide if he\she wants his/her map to be continually raining or snowing with no way to make it stop or make the map not precipitate at all, this would be great for adventure maps

    Second, after reading what you all claim bow strings are made of, I’m never touching one. (In real life.)

    • Posted December 12, 2013 at 12:40 | Permalink | Reply

      you can still touch them, the previous materials used were for traditional bows meaning when bows were first invented, they might still use those materials today, but probably in Europe. I believe they use materials more on the lines of flexy metal materials and things related

      p.s. I suck at giving explanations…. lol

  68. Posted December 12, 2013 at 03:55 | Permalink | Reply

    For those of you wanting cotton or wool they would both be unrealistic for bow string. Both of those materials are spun and they would not take the forces put on them by a bow. Cat gut is also second best since it toughens with age.
    The natural choices are linen, silk, and hemp. Modern material is almost exclusively some type of nylon.

    Get well soon. Obviously there will be string for the bows. I think there should be fishing rods. Fishing Rods will attract all aquatic animals except for orca.Fishes will bite the hook of the line. Once a fish is caught, it must be reeled in, otherwise it will escape. Once it is reeled you can either wait for it to dehydrate( if reeled into land) or kill it straight.

      Kaalus can’t do anything for Blackout, and it lasts only a few days, so Kaalus could release it later for (cr)apple.

      I don’t see why should Kaalus make this update smaller just because of (cr)apples Blackout. It wouldn’t be fair for others.

    I am at a lost for words…. Don’t get me wrong, I looooove sc, it’s a better game, I.e. Graphics, controls, sounds… But this update for mc is unbelievable….. I wish, I wish…. I wish….the next SC update is geared towards the builder and survivalist. More blocks(as I always ask for) more items more crops… Sc has enough game setting options, go ahead and set your environment, tweak the block type… But those things don’t make up the world your living/playing in… It’s all the LITTLE things that make the/our world rich with life, with personality, unique to an individual’s style or creativity. Sc needs more crops, more furniture more blocks… Sigh…

    Just Tried Minecraft PC Update… Still no comparison to Survival Craft with infinite worlds like Eden World Builder… The worlds are far to small very limited, found myself bored after a couple of hours…. minecraft PC is still way behind, well in my opinion anyway I’m afraid… Edens update still hasn’t come from over 2 year or so… Survival Craft appears to be the only game which the developer cares, listens and updates the games on the users requests, therefore I use this game the most often.. I do agree though more blocks would be great.. in EDEN glass can be painted along with virtually any other block makes it slightly more flexible in builds, and ICE that you can slide on (Like mine carts) and corners to change direction for auto transport.. but SC has far more other features… looking foward on how these games will progress…. Almost Forgot Hope you get better soon Kaalus!

      I agree, I read thru the MCPE new features, which are nice, and having carts and redstone is great. I took one for a spin. I don’t know how MCPE redstone compares to SC electronics. But in the end what decides it for me is SC’s world and texture and picture SHARING. Sorry for the caps but their absence in MCPE is as glaring as the absense of multi-player is in SC. So I stray to MCPE for the occasional multi-player but otherwise I stay in the SC community (does MCPE even have a community? If so I bet it is not as interactive and fun as SC’s texture, worlds, community building, etc). I also hesitate to build anything to nice in MC only to have a Creeper blow it up.

      I have put off buying MC PC because I know I will never return from it; and I will forget to eat, sleep, bathe, etc ;)

    Noticed the amount of monsters I can spawn with eggs has been extremely reduced. I absolutely can’t build adventure maps without the eggs. Its ruined a major aspect of creative mode. Plz increase spawn limits.
